I love this book! It was a great story about a normal 12 year old girl who is stuck between the worlds [that we all have been stuck in] of school, family, religion, and friends. This book was awesome and I could definatley relate to!!

I love this book, because it shows Margaret becoming an adult. I think it helps girls understand or feel more confortble with growing up and not belonging.I don't know why it is among the list of most banned books.

This book perfectly captures the life of a girl growing up. I couldn't put it down and have read it twice. It made me compare my own life to Margaret's and it was so similar and realistic. It was funny and emotional and a fast read. You'll remember the characters forever because they are so true and funny. I recommend it for teen girls or older if they want a refreshing recap of life during puberty. :)

The book Are You There God? It's Me Margret is about a young girl named Margret who just moved from her home in New York and is trying to understand what she can do to be more religious when her teacher assigns her a project to be worked on all year. Through the book, as Margret tries to understand the reasons for things that have happened or are happening in her life, she writes letters to God which express her feelings in an exteremely informal way. I enjoyed this book because of the lack of understanding in Margret.

I read this book when I was in high school (who didn't right??) It's still a classic and probably one of the best to capture some of angsty issues of a teenager. Bravo!!

I read this book many years ago, during my adolescence. I absolutely loved it; I go back and read it every once in awhile. The book is so fun. The three girls are so silly. Margaret's character is so easy to relate to. She is one of those characters that is either just like you, or just like one of your friends. The book made me feel more at ease about puberty and adolescence.
